Chocolate Licorice Truffles

These truffles are soooooo yummy! I will definately be making more very soon. Thanks to "That Blind Woman", Julie Woods for this yummy recipe.

Ingredients

1 packet sweet biscuits, crushed
250 grams butter, softened
2 cup icing sugar
1 cup coconut
Half a cup cocoa
1 bag soft black licorice
2 bags of chocolate melts, drops or chips
splash of olive oil

Crush the biscuits using a food processor and some ear muffs. In a large bowl, place everything except the chocolate melts and olive oil. Mix together. Roll into walnut size balls. If the mixture is a bit dry, add some milk to make the mixture more pliable. Melt the chocolate melts in a bowl in the microwave. Melt for one minute, then stir for a minute, repeating this process until the chocolate is melted. Add a splash or two of olive oil to thin down the chocolate. Using a fork, Dip the truffles into the melted chocolate and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Place in the fridge to set. Remove the truffles from the fridge and place in an airtight container, returning the container to the fridge with a padlock on it.

A great idea for Christmas gifts... or just for a treat.
